Aston Martin team principal Mike Krack revealed that they will work on ensuring Felipe Drugovich is “race ready”.

Drugovich, who won the Formula 2 title this year, joined Aston Martin’s driver development program later on. The Brazilian driver was behind the wheel of the AMR22 car in the opening free practice session of the Abu Dhabi GP.

Though Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso have a secured long-term future at Aston Martin, the Silverstone-based outfit wants to prepare Drugovich for F1.

“We will see how we develop the whole thing next year, whether we can run him in a previous car to prepare him, like [Oscar] Piastri did or like Lance did a couple of years ago, and then have maybe other appearances in practice [sessions],” Krack said in an interview with RacingNews365.com.

When asked if Aston Martin plans to make Drugovich one of its full-time drivers in the future, Krack replied: “Yeah, I think we have to see how the situation works out now, and [see] what his possibilities [are].

“At the moment, the target is clearly to develop him to be race ready, and then we will see how the situation goes next year.”
